For those that didn't know, I was recently suspended on this forum. For about a month or so...
Luckily, I was warned by a general user of the forum. Not even a moderator. It was Omega, and then warned by webmaster himself on 28/09/2007 9:48 AM.
His warning read this:
Oh, okay, thats good then. The forum description mislead me, but we get warnings so its okay. But hang on! I was banned before I even had a chance to read these warnings. It's not because I didn't check my inbox, it's because I had already been suspended.webmaster wrote:The Mindless Chit-chat forum is not an excuse to SPAM.
This is my first post after the warnings, so how can the warnings be worth sending if you are not given a chance to read and act upon them?
The point is, moderators need to warn users more frequently when they are posting inappropriately. If they did this, it would stop any unfair bans.
